Re: Impact vest vs cracked ribs?

first day I wore impact vest I injured my rib from spreader bar attachment hook hitting me. I wonder if the vest made it worse because it moved the harness on a bad spot. It was doing a simple backroll with speed landing flat on ribs... I have injured my ribs a few times and I think it was always fr...

Re: Popular jellyfish sting remedies make it worse

I thought peeing on it was the popular remedie, never heard of pouring salt water over it.
In the keys the locals suggested using meat tenderizer.

Re: Where's the Best Winter Wind?

NW of Costa Rica looks really strong in winter, almost too much wind ;) In Caribbean Barbados, St Lucia, Puerto Rico and Aruba looked the strongest last time I checked. Didn't check everything though especially islands that require multiple planes to get there. Got skunked in Aruba late Jan but some...

Re: New mobile game 'Kiteboard Hero' offers realistic kite action

Re: Soloshot3 a New way to film kiting

Alex Caizergues has used the Hexo Plus, there are some videos out there. I think Airdog has similar functionality to follow phone's gps. DJI requires phone to be connected to the remote controller in order to follow GPS position. DJI has a feature to track on screen without GPS but in my opninion it...

Re: Cabrinha Fireball update

So with fireball being on sale now for a number of months I would like to hear the pro's and con's from personal users as opposed to company riders, dealers etc. Does it work?

Re: Why suicide leash isn't a good idea

Those tube covered lines on the back of our harnesses STARTED as handles for someone to hold onto when you were overpowered or when launching the kite Ummm, no, they didn't. I was there at the beginning and your statement is patently false. Also, there was never a time when we launched in the power...
